Copps and Billy are no strangers to the City Ground – both have spent time on loan there in the past. But they spent more time warming the bench than actually showing Forest fans what they could do –let’s hope the finally see how could they can be this weekend.

Thankfully, Forest’s own ‘King Billy’ (manager Davies) is serving a touchline ban. Those in an around the technical area wouldn’t have been looking forward to a re-run of ‘Braveheart’ with our own Highland Warrior in the opposing dug-out!

We’ve not done badly at the City Ground in recent years. Who can forget our season-changing win on Boxing Day 2008 when Richie Wellens was one of the scorers? Our current skipper is due to open his account second time around – he’s been getting closer of late. Even ‘The Experiment’ managed to pick up three points thanks to goal machines Frederic Piquionne and Kyle Bennett. On a more serious note, though, great to see young Kyle on the score-sheet for Bradford at Colchester the other night.

Much has been made of Forest’s recent injury crisis but nobody in the media ever mentions how badly we’ve suffered this season – let’s hope we can get in some defensive cover before the loan window shuts. Andy Reid has had a storming season for ‘ The Tricky Trees’ and Donny lad Darius Henderson has also been getting more game time lately. But, if our makeshift defence can keep that pair quiet, we could yet steal another three points from Robin Hood country.
